In the discussion on #226 we talked about whether we need to ban sockpuppets, and then in testing #242 I created a new user, nomic-user and had them create #244. If you click on #244 as anything other than nomic-user you'll get a 404 because that account has been "flagged", which seems like shadowbanning. The message suggests I contact support, but then I wasn't sure if this was actually legit. Looking in the terms of service https://help.github.com/articles/github-terms-of-service/ I see "you may not have more than one free Account" so I think it's not.

It sounds like we should ban sockpuppets, since we don't want the game to be encouraging anyone to violate the GitHub terms of service. Any objections?

None whatsoever. I mentioned one account per player in #226 and I think it's a good idea.

Ok, sockpuppets are banned.
